What To Do With Late-Comers?

How do you respond when someone shows up late for your group meeting? Consider the following quote:

"When I'm late to church, people turn around and stare at me with frowns of disapproval. I get the clear message that I'm not as responsible as they are. When I'm late to Alcoholics Anonymous, the meeting comes to a halt, and everyone jumps up to hug and welcome me. They realize that my lateness may be a sign that I almost didn't make it. When I show up, it proves that my desperate need for them won out over my desperate need for alcohol."

So... how do you respond when someone shows up late for your group meeting?

This quote is from a friend of Phillip Yancey, as quoted by Sam O'Neal at smallgroup.com
